Stowe provides phenomenal options for hiking and exploring, from alpine ascents of Mt. Mansfield (Vermont’s highest peak) to a well-maintained network of nature trails. Enjoy the views from the Pinnacle Trail, follow the Long Trail (inspiration for the famous Vermont beer), or wander the tranquil paradise of Wiessner Woods. Moss Falls in another beautiful spot to visit – and it’s only a short walk to the falls. Use caution with small children – there are some steep drop-offs just off the trail. Be sure to wear durable footwear, pack hearty foods, and bring plenty of water!
